Mazzle's request.

Cheese and date bread.

Prep time: 20 minutes.
Cooking time: 45 minutes.
Makes 1 loaf.
Serves 8-10.

225g self-raising white flour.
A pinch of salt.
55g butter, diced.
85g mature cheddar cheese, finely grated.
115 pitted dried dates, finely chopped.
2 eggs.
150ml milk.

Preheat oven to 190C, 375F, Gas Mark 5. Grease a 900g loaf tin and set aside.

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl then lightly rub in the butter until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Stir in 70g of the cheese and all the dates.

Beat the eggs and milk together, the add to the date mixture and mix well to combine.

Turn the mixture into the tin and level the surface. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake the loaf for about 45 minutes or until risen and golden brown. Turn out and cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cold in slices.

Enjoy brew.

btw, I cheat in the kitchen: frozen diced butternut squash, most other veg too. All beans from tins. So, I don't peel and cut most things.
It reduces the potential sources of disaster.
